The video here goes a long way toward explaining Thompson’s appeal. He seems like a real person with a full life and a philosophical bent, not the average artificially consultant-constructed candidate we have come to see so often. He may not have what it takes to be president(or may have missed an opening this summer) but if you had to sit down for an hour and have an interesting conversation with someone or if you had to choose a trustworthy person to head a social security commission you could do a lot worse. But for better or worse we are electing a president and those are generally Type A people, with enormous energy and drive and somehow his persona –which he is too honest to conceal –doesn’t match the job description. Now a great VP pick is another story..
